Shagan Envelopes

Hi Crafters,

We all know that Shagan Envelopes are one of the most sought out things during any indian traditions especially marriages. I remember we had a load full in mine and it was raining shagan envelopes during all the  wedding ceremonies. 
I had made a few envelopes way back but wanted to make some more and here are they..

I have used some stamping along with a quilled flowers and some stamped leaves to make these up. and of course , the white pearls... I love putting them on my projects, they do take the look to a higher level.

 Here's a detailed flower.... I have kept it quite simple and just added a layer of the same flower on to the top of to add dimension to it.

 I had fun making these. Somehow quilling is such a relaxing way to energies yourself as well as make something truly amazing out of the paper stripes :) Isnt quilling fun ???
I find it awesome !!!

Gond painting

I have tried my hand at making madhubani painting earlier and a preview of the madhubani inspired magnets can be viewed here.

Gond paintings are native to gond tribal community which hails mainly from the areas in central India. India has such rich and amazing forms of art that it's truly wonderful to see and try some of them.
